Dickens Literary Salon - Our Mutual Friend
Thursday, November 15, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
Join us as we discuss Dickens’s last completed novel, Our Mutual Friend, one of the most complexly plotted of his works. It begins with the drowning of the heir to a fortune and takes a panoramic look at English society. From the glamour of the social-climbing Veneering’s fancy dinner parties to the grit of dust heaps and the overarching theme of the river, the novel represents some of Dickens’s most biting social commentary.
